CLEVELAND — Cavaliers forward Kevin Love will return Monday after missing six weeks because of a broken left hand.

Cleveland was 11-9 without Love, who was injured on Jan. 30. He’s averaging 17.9 points and 9.4 rebounds in 48 games.

Associate head coach Larry Drew said Love’s minutes will be restricted in Cleveland’s game against Milwaukee. Drew is running the team while coach Tyronn Lue takes a leave of absence to address health issues that have included chest pains and a loss of sleep.

The Cavaliers are third in the Eastern Conference despite dealing with several injuries. Larry Nance Jr. (sore right hamstring), Rodney Hood (strained lower back), Cedi Osman (strained left hip flexor) and Tristan Thompson (sprained right ankle) were ruled out of Monday’s game.
